>> hello, everyone, and good morning. it is saturday, the 3rd of may, 2014. i'm anna kooiman. almost two years after four americans were killed in benghazi, will we finally get justice? >> i have evidence that not only are they hiding it, there is an intent to hide it. >> latest on this benghazi bombshell. >> and caught on camera. media bias at its most outrageous. >> see what you are writing down there you just wrote down blah blah blah for everything that joe ray said. she respected woman why are you writing blah blah blah
3:01am
on your note bad. >> you thought it was bad in the press corps. this video will blow your mind. >> that's what my wife writes down when i talk is that wrong? ben affleck banned for life from a popular casino. wait until you see why. what was he doing there, batman? "fox & friends" right now. ♪ ♪ >> what is that from? that's the fox news trumpeter. >> the fastest two minutes in sports. >> the kentucky derby. >> why aren't threw? >> ainsley earhardt has on the bonnet this year. >> she is allergic to horses. can you smell the horses? i love this time of the year. spring is officially here. summer is right around the corner. moist, humid, rainy. janice dean is going to be here. >> why not take powder sugar pour it in a glass of
3:02am
bourbon and have it for breakfast. [cheers] >> making the thousand dollar mint. >> a new document roocketly unearthed by a national security official by the obama administration preparing talking points for susan rice. you will remember right after those attacks, september 11th, 2012, she went on the sunday shows and claimed that these attacks were the result of popular outrage against a youtube video. the question for almost two years has been where did that line come from. it's demonstrably untrue. we now know it was part of a coordinated effort from the white house to spin the reality of benghazi. >> that document only unearthed after freedom of information act request. and the white house's talking points on all of this is that that document really had nothing to do with benghazi. it had to do separately with the attacks there. that's why we didn't release
3:03am
the document. >> they said it had to do with the region not benghazi specifically. even though judicial watch group, the conservative watch group that filed suit. they had to sue to get these documents. that's what they asked for benghazi documents. >> we should be clear by the way the congressional investigators have been working to get relevant documents like this for more than a year and have been, for whatever reason, i hope we find out, unable to do that. it was left tore independent group, judicial watch to get it the congress couldn't get this document. >> trey gowdy was "on the record" last night with greta van susteren. he has evidence. he can't talk about it publicly just yet, specifically, that the white house is hiding something. and he is now the chairman of this committee. take a listen. >> i have evidence that not only are they hiding it, there is an intent to hide it. i can't close that evidence yet, but i have evidence that there was a systematic
3:04am
intentional decision to withhold certain documents from congress, and we're just sick of it. so we're going to get him to come explain why we are getting documents 20 months late. >> i should say reportedly, maybe selected to head up that committee. the way it's interesting to watch democrats respond to this because a whole host of democrats taking to twitter, mocking the response about benghazi. here the right wing goes once again. harry reid managed to somehow weave the koch brothers into the into the debate. republicans showing yet again have nothing. more interested in defending it took 20 months and john boehner now announcing. >> he we live in an age of talking points and bipartisanship, we all know it it take two or three
3:05am
steps back. this is the most powerful legislator in the world and we are talking about the death of four americans and he is bringing up koch brothers equal pay for equal work. this is really an inadequate pretty outrageous response. >> joe trippi, we will play sound from him later in the show this morning. he said look, democrats and of course he is a democrat. joe trippi saying look democrats need to get off this line and playing the partisan card here. partisan debate when four americans have died. the optics are terrible and it doesn't wash. >> other thing that is surprising is the way the state department has responded to this announcement of the special committee by john boehner and subpoenaing john kerry. we are are shocked. we are surprised because we have been cooperating. you have been cooperating? why did a nonprofit have to sue to you get these documents. >> it had nothing to do with benghazi. >> i forgot. >> nothing to see here, look away. >> it's unbelievable.
3:06am
okay. so, probably many of you, this is going out on a limb here, may have suspicions about the media. reporters survey after survey has shown they are way more liberal than the average person and a lot of people believe their coverage reflects that orientation. very rarely is the curtain pulled back and you get to see what it's actually like inside a newspaper. a candidate for office in the state of oregon gave an interview with the editorial board of the weekly paper. here is what happened when they sat down. watch, this unbelievable. >> i see what you are writing down there, you just wrote down blah blah blah for everything that jo ray said is. she respectable woman why are you not respecting her by writing blah blah blah on your note pad. >> we will move on if you answer respectfully. >> you have to give respect in order to. >> climate change do you believe it's a myth or reality. >> it's a myth. >> it is. >> yes.
3:07am
>> where are you on the easter bunny? >> are these really the questions that i was called here to answer? really? >> representative, i called you out for putting blah blah blah on your note pad and now you are asking me questions like this? >> you are done here. this is neither a fair or balanced meeting. this is is a meeting for us to do. >> it's a meeting being asked by disrespectful thin-skinned liberals like yourself. >> there is is the door. >> i have better things to do with my time. >> that's the republican candidate. >> that's unbelievable. >> to his left was the liberal candidate. he then went on to answer further the questions about climate change and he went into the discussion about it it but the fact that the reporter who was asking him the questions at first about climate change wasn't writing anything down. he was just going blah blah blah, i'm not listening to this republican candidate. and oh by the way, what do you think about the easter bunny. >> this was after the candidate was shown the door had basically called out the reporter for doing that for
3:08am
a woman who was on speaker phone. she wasn't able to be there at the meeting. also a candidate. and, you know, you want to talk to harry reid about the war on women. well, there you go. there it is. >> what is so interesting by the way. this reporter gets writing blah blah blah down. you think the natural reaction would be busted. instead they go after the candidate for pointing it out you are not respectful. in case you think this is some little weekfully oregon not on the radar of the national press corps. the guy asking these questions won the pulitzer prize. i looked it up. so offended by. this guy in his 50s. he won the pulitzer prize. highest award in journalism. is he asking questions about the easter bunny. >> training ground for a national stage anyway. >> the will am met weekly. >> why are you on the easter bunny? >> where are you on the easter bunny?

3:15am
quarter past the hour this saturday morning. no english, no problem. you will probably get fast tracked for. considers a person's ability to learn english when deciding if someone is disabled. joining us is reporter with the washington free beacon in. good morning. >> good morning. >> could this be true not knowing english counts in your favor in disability.
3:16am
>> that's what is what senator jeff sessions discovered here. he did investigation from the budget committee which found they were looking into why has the disability roles increased so much. applications have gone up 230% in a decade. so they are wondering why this is. they found a little known policy where the social security administration will look at, you know, education as a factor when determining if someone is disabled. and the social security will say okay, they will consider if you cannot speak english as one of the small factors if someone is disabled. but what they have found is that is now being used as the only reason and you don't have to prove it in your hearing. can you just say through an interpreter no, i can't speak english and then they are being approved. sessions is raising this concern. >> yeah. so these lawyers are demanding that an interpreter be there, even if their client actually can, indeed, speak english. how does that even happen? i mean, how could something like this be on the becomes?
3:17am
>> well, that's the thing, it's a little known -- it's almost a loophole. it's a policy that senator sessions is worried as being misconstrued by the social security administration. they are using this one little line which, as you know, social security disability insurance is meant for, you know, individuals that are in the workforce, american citizens, who are no longer able to work because of a physical or mental impairment. to become an american citizen, you have to demonstrate at least a basic knowledge of the english language and now they are finding in these hearings individuals applying are saying oh, you know, i can't speak english but through an interpreter they don't have to prove it and getting automatically approved. >> this is the same administration that advertises food stamps in mexico. isn't this something that would dissuade people from being assimilated. >> there are concerns about that i think it's interesting, too.
3:18am
because like you mentioned with food stamps there has been cases of fraud particularly in puerto rico. and senator sessions in the report found the same thing with disability insurance. there is one case in puerto rico where a plant closed down 300 workers, all of the sudden 290 of them applied for disability insurance once they were laid off. and they all got approved. so he they were thinking this brought this to their attention it. they are thinking they are using this cannot speak english as a way to apply for disability, especially in puerto rico. from especially when the process for naturalization involves having a working knowledge of the english language. doesn't make a lot of sense. elizabeth hairington, thank you so much. >> thanks for having me. >> coming up, so much for sovereignty, one state now letting illegals practice law. is that fair? we will report. and can you decide. >> plus, it's the fastest in sports. races are warming up. ainsley?

pretty young. >> yeah, i was 11 when he he passed away. >> you have this incredible work ethic. you wanted to go to college and this foundation helped to bridge the gap for you. >> yeah, definitely. my father passed away when i was about 11 years old. i sort of felt like he sort of gave me this sense of self-motivation and work ethic that i have carried with me to college. >> we have pictures of him on the screen he was a marine in vietnam? >> yes, that's right. >> that work ethic that we love to see. and i think leads to that high success of the graduation rate. the children of the marines learn those same values that the marine, that the parent had. and they carry those through. and it's a winning success story. >> do your classmates know that you have been helped by the marine corps foundation? chool that is. sort of, you know, a the love people go there on scholarships and we sometimes get together and talk about how. >> sort of an expensive school. >> one of the most important, right? >> yeah. actually. and so, yeah. i'm pretty okay and open talking about like this is
3:46am
how i'm actually affording to go here. >> that's pretty great. >> kevin, when we think about recruitment and sometimes the difficulties, the challenges that the marine corps faces, how do organizations like yours help that process? >> i think that everybody loves, as i is said, loves marines and when somebody is deciding to go in and serve and when they are serving, they want to know what are the -- they are usually serving for selfless reasons. they have some sense they want to be able to carry on a i will afterwards and not give up their whole life which many do. >> the family is taken care of, the foundations are -- i think when people enlist they are not thinking when i have kids it will be great when they go to college. we know that when people are in and deciding whether to stay in, when people have children, and then they learn about the foundation, they are very surprised. it's something that a lot of
3:47am
people don't know about. and so they are surprised to find out wow, there are people out there that will help me help my kids in the future. >> that is pretty awesome. and what a deserving group. thanks a lot for joining us. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. >> 47 minutes after the hour. coming up on "fox & friends" weekend, do you feel like you are not as successful as your siblings? it may not be your fault. just blame it on your birth order we'll explain. >> or it might be your fault. dozens of high school students take senior prank to the next level and get arrested for its what the punishment fitting the crime? we will debate that coming up. ♪ you've reached the age where you know how things work. this is the age of knowing what needs to be done. so why let erectile dysfunction get in your way?

welcome back. more than 60 students arrested after a senior prank goes way too far in new jersey. students broke in and trashed their high school at 2:00 in the morning, smearing vaseline on doorknobs. oh no. they taped hot dogs to lockers. destroyed desks and did other things in the hallways pretty disgusting so. far 24 students have been criminally charged. of the school district is considering additional action. what should the punishment be for these students? joining me now for a fair and balanced debate jonna spilbore. >> good to he see you this morning. >> good to see you, clayton. >> 62 kids involved in this. do you think that's too far. >> breaking is a felony. these kids committed a felony. this is known in the legal world as felony stupid. they should not be charged. honestly what they did was wrong but this is a crime that can be aleve yated president parents pay out a lot of money to make sure that this school brought back. they cleaned up the school
3:52am
but these kids don't deserve criminal records. they don't deserve not to go to college. they don't deserve not to have their scholarships ripped from them. >> superintendent considering no presume. banned from other senior traditions. not graduating not going to college as a result of this. is that a normal senior thing it? >> is a normal senior thing, actually. this there may have to be some if there was destruction of property and maybe something like they can't go to the barometer or something to basically say to the school community you can't do these things. clayton i have to tell you i have a senior my son came to me with a senior prank idea. we are going to get together, dad, we are all going to go to the library and sleep overnight. be in sleeping bags so when the faculty comes the next morning i said bad idea, that's called breaking and entering. i will tell you what they did do. what they did do decided go to all boy's school. we are all going to bring our dogs in the next day and walk around the hallway. 60 boys came in with pet dogs walked around the hallway. a clean stunt.
3:53am
the faculty loved it. the faculty was playing with the dogs. it was kind of fun and no one got hurt. >> no one got hurt. is that the issue here. gravity. damage to the property in this situation. if some of these kids were over 18. so then you have got juveniles and adults. how does the law look at those differently in this situation? >> usually 18-year-olds are treated like adults. i will tell you what, i'm not sure if it's the same in new jersey, here in new york, if an 18-year-old commits a crime, they are treated as a, quote: youthful offender that means they can be guilty. be found guilty, but that record is forever sealed. no college will ever know of it no employer will ever know of it. so these kids -- nobody was more than 18 years old. and if they have the same provision there, they would qualify for that which begs the question. then don't bother. let's not prosecute them. let's have the parents pay some money and let's call it a day. >> what sort of precedent are we setting here today though. it's okay. you break into a school and smash things. go to the bathroom in the hallway. which many solve these kids
3:54am
did. spray paint things. this is okay under the law? >> if there was destruction and your honor naghtd in the hallway, something has to be deny to send a message to the school community it won't be tolerated. >> throw money at the problem. >> parents will have to pay for the destruction kids under 18. kids over 18 they will have to pay for it themselves and may have to do some community service. >> also criminal record going forward for the rest of their lives. do they have a case. could they actually flip the tables on prosecutors? >> flip the script? >> flip the script. say this was a simple senior prank and now we have criminal records and going to ruin our careers. >> and that's a great question. and prosecutors have what we call discretion. so, any -- a prosecutor with a heart, if you are prosecuting this, do you want to see these kids have a criminal record -- you don't get rid of your criminal record, not ever. no prosecutor with this intent, they didn't burn down the school, right? they did a lot of stupid things, and studies have shown most of these kids
3:55am
were male. studies show a male's brain doesn't mature until 2 a. it's a scientific thing. >> do you agree with that. >> i don't agree with that that's a subject for another day, i think. >> what's been the response from parents in all of, this actually having to foot the bill for this? >> it's a problem. i think this is another example of parents have to talk to their kids. my f. my son didn't come and talk to he moorks maybe they would have gone into the library. than they would have broken. in baby they would have been subject to criminal charges. so i think there has to be communication between parent and child and when there is, sometime we parents can give pretty good advice. >> know where your kids are at 2:00 a.m. >> not every parent is a lawyer. and kids can say here is what i am going to do to my high school. will this get me locked up. nice to see you this morning. >> nice to see you too, clayton. >> punt to me on twitter at well clayton morse. morris. >> another secret waited

>> hey, everybody, how are you feeling? saturday the third of may, 2013. i'm anna kooiman. as the house pushes for a special committee. the state department says benghazi is a waste of time. >> the amount of man hours and taxpayer dollars that go in to all of this is incredibly time consuming for our folks here. >> too much work to deliver justice for four dead americans? >> then they left our

americans to die on a secret wait list. another secret blower is coming forward saying this is just the tip of a very ugly iceberg. speaking out for the first time only on "fox & friends." >> tree trimming goes horribly wrong. [gasp] >> amateur. but is he fine. how he walked away from that one. "fox & friends" hour two. i'm not laughing. starts right now. >> the united states marine corps, you are watching "fox & friends." >> now when you say i'm not laughing, what you really mean is i'm laughing. >> i'm trying to keep my -- >> it's okay. our producers remind us he is okay. despite all appearances. >> being knocked off the ladder. >> my dad fell off a ladder one time. up cleaning the gutters. he used to as a kid have me

4:02am
judicial watch uncovering direct correlation between the house and what happened on those sunday morning talk shows. the state department saying, look, we have got better things to do right now than to go back and relitigate benghazi. take a listen to marie hearth. >> the am of man hours and taxpayer dollars that go in to all of this is incredibly time consuming for our folks here and other agencies as well. we are committed to doing it because it's important, but when we have already done it, the point of doing more of this when we could be spending our time talking about, again, embassy security, bringing people to justice, we think that's a better allocation of resources given that we have already gone over this. >> better allocation of resources. we want to get to the truth in this email that judicial watch had to sue for, seems to be a smoking gun is what it has been called in the headline it says 4 p.m. prep call with susan rice. let's make sure this doesn't appear that it's a broader failure of policy on behalf of the obama administration. let's blame it on an
4:03am
internet extremist video. and we still don't even know where the intelligence came from for that little piece right there. it is a waste of time doesn't appear to be. joe trippi is a democrat and he is even calling out the administration. let's listen to what he he has to say. >> he they are treating this like the partisan attack they see it to be the problem is the optics of that, given that there are four americans that lost their leist and there are still unanswered questions about why they weren't defended. there are legitimate -- i don't think they view and it's still an open question about -- and i don't really view the talking points as a big issue. the real issue here is why did an ambassador have little or no real security in a place like libya on september 11th. >> that's a great question. who was in charge of security at the time when we knew that there were a number of attacks, a number of threats leading up to this incident. we knew they had drones in the sky watching ago live video feed as this battle
4:04am
unfolded for 7 to 8 hours. ty woods, of course you remember he was killed tragically in this attack, a navy seal who was killed, said when the bodies arrived back in the united states, hillary clinton looked right into his eyes and still was blaming it on that video. listen. >> well it, came out on the 12th, i'm sorry, on the 14th. this was about the same time that i met hillary clinton when the bodies came in to andrews air force base. and i think i mentioned this to you before. hillary clinton came up to me and i gave her a handshake and a hug. and when i shook her hand she said to me: we are going to have the film maker arrested. >> do you i think this may be te single most shocking thing in the benghazi story. secretary of state doesn't get to arrest people. second first amendment protects free expression of political views in which this video contained. the idea that because you do
4:05am
a video on the internet that the obama administration doesn't like you get arrested is over the top. by the way, he was arrested. and not only was he arrested, there is no sober person believes this film maker would have been arrested had it not been for the administration blaming him for the benghazi attacks. moreover, no would have seen the video if they hadn't called attention to it. this guy did a long time in jail. is that what they do with inconvenient people in the administration? we are just going to have him arrested. that's thought the not the way it works. >> people responsible for the attack we have video of them hanging out on beechesz. >> they have done interviews with american news crews. knocke not like they are hard to find. this divif who irritated hillary clinton was taken away to jail. shocking. >> oonto piggy back up what joe trippi said as far as the security goes and the talking points go to link the two together, it goes to prove a lot of folks say anyway that there is some sort of protection going on to trial to protect the
4:06am
president and also hillary clinton. so, essentially, playing politics and putting politics and the protection of both of those individuals ahead of the four lives that were lost. >> yeah, so just a warning. >> ahead of the election, obviously. >> just think twice before you post a provocative youtube video. hillary clinton might just have you arrested. that's the way it works. don't like them have them arrested. it actually happened. >> yeah. and we can talk more about this and some of the frustrations i have with the administration moving towards internet restrictions. i mean, we are getting -- i think we are entering into an interesting and scary time right now. >> stop. they could have you arrested. >> lead us know what you think about it, friends@foxnews.com. please weigh in. we will be talking with governor huckabee about this very issue coming up later in the hour. >> 8:00 hour. >> we have other headlines we want to tell you about potentially a deadly virus here in the united states. centers for disease control announcing respiratory case called mers in the united

4:10am
>> no? >> less so? >> there is a lot of attention on the first. oh, it's our little baby. >> what about your birth order? >> i was the first. i had a stricter curfew. she was left to roam free in the pastures. midnight. oh is nicole even home yet. >> really the daughter? >> yeah. >> what about you? >> i have an older brother. when we were young, kids we had our iq tested. his was higher than mine. i always did better in school than he did. and, i don't know, we are very different. is he more content, more satisfied, more laid back, more chilled. and i'm never satisfied. i'm always wanting more. so i mean it's kind of the opposite. i think i'm the dreamer of the two. >> interesting. let us know what you think about this, friends@foxnews.com and your birth order. are you a bigger achiever and dreamer let us know at foxandfriends.com. coming up next, they left our veterans to die on secret wait list. another whistle blower coming forward saying this is just the tip of the iceberg. she is speaking out first
4:11am
only on "fox & friends." >> tree trimming goes horribly wrong for one man as it often does. how he was able to walk away unharmed after this terrifying brush, unintended with death. >> who was filming? >> who films a branch cutting? a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, this can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain, and improve daily physical function so moving is easier. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain. and it's not a narcotic you and your doctor should balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning.
4:12am
they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. thischance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, like celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions, or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. don't take celebrex if you have bleeding in the stomach or intestine, or had an asthma attack, hives, other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides. get help right away if you have swelling of the face or throat, or trouble breathing. tell your doctor your medical history. and ask your doctor about celebrex. for a body in motion.

the secretary of veterans affairs put three officials at the phoenix v.a. on administrative leave. this whistle blower claimed 40 veterans died after they were put on a secret wait list. the officials including director sharon helmand denied knowing anything about that list. a second whistle blower has stepped forward. she is dr. catherine michelle. she was worked at that hospital for 16 years.
4:15am
she says the problems go way beyond the list to the corruption of the entire v.a. system. dr. kathleen mitchell was talking to us only here on "fox & friends." we are grateful to have her. doctor, thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you for having me. >> you have said that you were concerned that officials at the v.a. would seek to cover their tracks by altering or erasing electronic documents pertaining to this list. >> yes. that was the concern when the employee asked me for moore assistance on sunday night to secure the only paper copy that he had so that management would not have the ability to go back in and alter the document in the computer. >> that would be a crime, is my understanding, to do something like that but you think management at the v.a. is capable of that? >> oh, yes. in the past, the investigations that have occurred on a routine basis in the 16 years that i have been there in general, things are swept under the carpet before the investigation is completed
4:16am
because they have advanced notice. >> you said that you believe that the corruption of the v.a. had a direct effect on patient care and led, in some cases to people dying. is that correct? >> any corruption within the department of the v.a. system will have a direct effect on patient care because our mission is to provide healthcare services for veterans. the any any anything that impedes our ability to provide safe care we equally have impact on patient care appropriate consults. delays into getting into lynn nics. whether it's the physicians that are retaliated against for bringing up patient safety issue is the fact staffing is drastically inadequate the to cover the needs of the veterans even for what nobody has said. allegedly 40 people that
4:17am
died while waiving. even if there hadn't been a paper stack paper list before you were put on the electronic paper list. i couldn't guarantee that the phoenix appropriately in a timely manner. not just our facility. the department of va and all the medical centers are shorthanded. >> those are pretty serious charges are are you concerned that you will face retaliation for airing them publicly for becoming a whistle blower? >> yes. >> even if the public support is wide enough to or when they recognize the seriousness of the problem in all v.a.s, unless the public can change the v.a., the system of administration is going to end up coming back at me for retaliation in the long term. that's the way it's always been. >> you would think they would want to know if the system isn't working and veterans are dying as a result. you would think the last thing he would want to do is punish the person who brought it to their ait
4:18am
tension. >> such logic rational thought is not common within many v.a. administrators in the department of the v.a. there are across the country there are physician after physician that i'm aware of who have tried to speak up for patient safety care issues. and have either gotten retaliated against by having the proficiencies dropped, they are laterally transferred or removed. there is actually a couple processes which no one has really got noon detail called sham pier review. that's where a pier review normally is where a facility has a significant concern about the ability of a physician do routine patient care. they pull a section of their cases and review them to make sure that the clinical care that was given by the physician is consistent with the medical standard for those conditions. there are facilities, department of v.a., i'm sorry, medical centers where administrators use the
4:19am
ability to order a pier review in order to basically smudge a physician's reputation. >> that makes sense. >> let me just ask. this has been going on, you said for some time now. but you have only recently come forward with it publicly. is that why? why the lag between you noticing these problems and you reporting them in public? >> there is a couple of reasons. one is it's always better to work for change within the system. publicity actually gets attention focused on the v.a. what generally happens cameras are on. after they are off retaliation against anyone who spoke up. it doesn't matter from what department. and that's been the way it is just the way operations are done within the v.a. system. i do want to elm' if a size the majority of administration are honest. in every facility there is a few administrators that are so unethical that they basically have and they
4:20am
wield enough power that they have the ability to silence everybody who brings up patient care safety issues as well as prohibited personnel practices. preselection for jobs. for gs level employees much the ability to penalize them because they don't have sufficient staffing for a particular department so that and so they are not able to complete their job efficiently. you are not supposed to be able to penalize gs level employees because of short staffing in the department itself. when it's deny, then it's up to the union at each fillings to go forward and protest it on behalf of the employee. most employees don't bother because the risk of retaliation is too high. >> as numb as i am to stories of bureaucratic in mismanagement dmv shocking take place at veterans hospital as much as the v.a. system. thank you for being here this morning.

4:27am

their type 2 diabetes... ...with non-insulin victoza. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar, but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza. he said victoza works differently than pills, and it comes in a pen. and the needle is thin. victoza is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza is not insulin. do not take victoza if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza
4:32am
or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include swelling of face, lips, tongue or throat, fainting or dizziness, very rapid heartbeat, problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis) which may be fatal. stop taking victoza and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back, with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, and headache. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need... ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza. it's covered by most health plans.

4:46am
wrong turn? how did all of this come about? >> i received a phone call when he had just approached the border and literally he says mexican officials are circling my car now, mom, i need to let you know where i am. i got lost and made a wrong turn and i'm in mexico i need you to know where i'm at in case something happens to me. >> well, and then he ended up getting arrested because they are illegal there, right? answered gets thrown in jail. >> yes. >> all of these weapons charges though that he is facing there have gotten muddied up a bit because he tried to escape. i guess he felt like that was his last resort? >> he tried to escape because he was in imminent danger of being killed. he perceived he was going to be killed. he called me in a holding cell with many member. i heard a lot of chaos in the background. he said mom, i'm not going to make it through the night. whatever you do, don't come and ask any questions because you are not safe
4:47am
either. the next day he called me and said mom, i escaped. i got into a better a safer part of the jail i said what, you escaped? i said mom they were going to kill me. there were hit men in there. they told me they were going to rape, torture and execute me and i was going to go out in a body bag. i had to get out of there. i was going to be killed. i feel safer and in a better part of the jail. the relief in his voice the day after so i know that as a marine he had to put his own life in his own hands to escape what he thought was imminent death in that 72 hour holding cell with a lot of men and penitentiary. since then he has been in a safer protected area. >> you say a safer protected area. but since you tell me has been chained to a cot in infirmary? >> yes. he sustained a neck wound and he had to be hospitalized with stitches.
4:48am
and as of sunday night he told me it was 25 days counting that he was chained by all fours to the 00 cot. and i haven't heard from the statement department that that condition has changed. so i can only assume he is still in four point restraint chained to a cot in the infirmary. >> he we have taupe to help him he is one of our heroes. what's our government doing. >> congressman hunter wrote a letter to the state department. secretary of state john kerry asking that there be a high level review of the andrews case to expedite an immediate release to -- back to the states because he is in desperate need of freedom and with help. he had just been diagnosed 10 days earlier. that's why he was out in the san diego area to seek help for ptsd. he already started a treatment plan 12 days earlier to this horrifying
4:49am
mistake. >> we do have a quote there from representative duncan hunter. while i recognize that your focus of secretary of state is in many different areas. it is absolutely critical that appear druce' release is achieved as soon as possible. he served his country safely as a united states marine and he is owed the same commitment by the u.s. government in return. that to secretary of state john kerry. we know that back in 2012. john hammer also a florida marine veteran was held for four months in the mexican border prison but pressure from the united states government and pressure from the media helped to get him released and we are certainly hoping the same happens for your son. jill, thank you so much. >> absolutely. if i could just say i put on a whitehouse.gov petition, please, if everyone could go on there and consider signing, i would appreciate it. >> absolutely. >> thank you. >> thank you. had 9 minutes after the hour. caught on camera. media bias at its finest. >> i can see what you are writing down there, you just wrote down blah blah blah for everything that jill ray

5:05am
>> unbelievable. >> thank you, anna. >> let's bring in governor mike huckabee to talk about the big news of the day. nice to be with you guys again. >> what do you make of this benghazi story? so we got access, the public got access thanks to a nonprofit judicial watch to email that really is the smoking gun. we didn't get it. the congress didn't get it. this looks like obstruction of justice. not giving up that email to congress, no? >> what else could it be but obstruction of justice. when the united states congress that has the constitutional right and responsibility to make sure that there is check and balance on the executive branch. when they ask for specific information, they are stonewalled, they are lied to. and then somebody else has to get the information, that's what that is. that's an obstruction of justice. i think this is really more serious. people can dismiss it as a partisan witch-hunt. it's a very serious issue. it reminds me back what we saw in the watergate days.
5:06am
if this is the tip of the iceberg as trey gowdy is alleging. 20 months since this has unfolded just now. >> i think there is a reluctance on the part of republicans to create a select committee because it brings up the whole reminder of what happened during the clinton years and special prosecutors and watergate and every time special prosecutors and select committees happen it does create a very harsh environment in washington. nobody wants to see things get even worse and more partisan, more bitter. but we're probably going to see it what should happen is the kind of statesmanship that we did see back in the 70 when watergate happened. when you had republicans like howard baker who were willing to ask the tough questions and didn't care that it was his own party that was at fault. he wanted truth. he wanted honor, he wanted justice. this is the kind of statesmanship that is very much lacking in d.c. today. it's what we need.
5:07am
people ought to rise above their own party affiliations and say, there are four dead americans. i owe it to them and to their families to find out what happened. let the chips fall where they may. >> you mean statesmanship like harry reid, senate majority leader who is saying this is exactly a republican talking point, this is a right wing -- this is a right wing scandal that they are making up. in fact, he said. this read this verbatim. republicans are showing yet again, that they have nothing to offer the middle class. republicans care more about defending billionaires lick the koch brothers and trying to rekindle debunked right wing conspiracy theories than raising the minimum wage or making sure women receive equal pay for equal work. >> harry reid has a theme things go better with koch. he can't utter a sentence without bringing the koch brothers into it they have nothing to do with benghazi. they have nothing to do with this scandal. i think it's almost to a point now where harry reid has become a comedy, a tragic comedy but a comedy
5:08am
nonetheless. when he says something just know that whatever he is saying has nothing to do with the topic at hand. and this is a great example of that. he ought to be standing up as the leader of the senate, the most's most deliberative body once it was now it's the most dysfunctional body. this is an issue we need to get to the bottom of. if there is nothing there, republicans are going to be humiliated and embarrassed. if there is something there, the country will be well-served by truth. it's always well-served by truth, never well-served by lies. we have been given lies from the very beginning on this story, from the very first day this happened, september 11th, 2012, our government has constantly lied to us and they covered it up and i think now as the old saying is the chickens are really coming home to roost. >> i i want get your take on this bombshell too that was actually just dropped here on "fox & friends." we have a second doctor speaking out from the phoenix v.a. who is testifying to the shredding
5:09am
of documents to taking screen grabs and giving certain information to washington and concealing secret waiting lists that have caused allegedly 40 of our heros to die. let's listen to dr. catherine mitchell. that seconds whistle blower. >> in the past, the investigations that have occurred on a routine basis in the 16 years thraive that i have been there. in general things are swept under the carpet before the investigation is completed because they have advanced notice. majority of administrators are honest. in every facility there are a few administrators who unethical that they basically have and wield enough power that they have the ability to silence everybody who brings up patient care safety issues as well as prohibited personnel practices. >> she says she is fearful of retaliation following her speaking out on our airways. just how broken is this system? >> incredibly broken. i think we need it to know two things. one, there is a difference between inat the expense and
5:10am
criminal activity when something is as wrong as this is. actions cover tracks to make themselves look good. in this case the life of a veteran. that goes beyond incompetence, that's criminal activity. the second thing that i hope every american will keep in mind. when we talk about the benefits to our veterans, we are not talking about entitlements. we are not talking about some type of assistance to people that are begging for it we are talking about the moral obligation that this country owes to those who kept their promises to this country. put on uniforms. went halfway around the world to places they couldn't pro-he nouns when they got there, put their lives on the line so the rest of us could breathe free air in our homes and these are the people, and i use this term deliberately, we have a moral obligation to see that whatever it is that we promised them we keep the promise and we never ask them to wait in
5:11am
line to get it and that's why i think a the lo of americans' blood just boils over this story. >> they were promised they would be taken care of when they came home. >> and they haven't been. >> well said. who is coming up on the show tonight. >> we have kareem abdul jabbar talking about on the sterling case and -- paul tier older sis it ter with be with us tonight. benghazi former cia agent. and i think it's going to be a great show. >> kareem wrote a really compelling piece this week. >> you have been keeping that case in the news. >> i will until the girl gets home. outrageous abuses of state authority against a family that i have ever witnessed in my life. >> 8 p.m. tonight on fox news network. >> a fox news alert. protesters promised to-to stop condoleezza rice from speaking at rutgers. >> the world's worst human

5:16am
great show as usual. as you know one of the stories that we have been covering and tracking as it got closer and closer to commencement day on may 18th is some of the protests and uproar within the rutgers university where it seems as though a handful of professors and some students. there was about 50 there have decided that she was not the right choice to be the commencement speaker for rutgers graduates this year. so, considers coming back from an overseas trip has decided to do this and here is the statement that's just been released to "fox & friends." this commencement should be a time of joyous celebration for the graduates and their families. rutgers invitation to me to speak has become a distraction for the university community at this very special time. i am honored to have served my country. i have defended america's belief in free speech and the exchange of ideas. she's values have essential to the health of our democracy but that is not the issue here. - she will becided she will rejecting the offer to be the commencement speaker. >> oh, boy. >> she says she doesn't want
5:17am
to be a distraction it's a special day for these kids and i don't want to be a distraction there. >> that's what she is saying. what you see is handful of students that we could see, 50 showed up at that sit-in. what you see is a handful of professors who decided with her role in they call it torture. the administration called it enhanced interrogation and the run-up in the iraq war itself she would be a bad representative for what the university stands for. this according to a few professors. the president all the way says we are about free speech. we invited her and we want her to stay. we want her to continue to do it. he as far as we can tell was standing by her the entire time. >> kind of dismicial decision. she doesn't want to step on graduation for the students. giving up $35,000 fee. that's a small thing. on the other hand she is in effect being shouted down, drown out. protesters have won don't you think by her pulling out? >> it depends on how you do it. she explained to me through her chief of staff that she is all about academia. secretary or diplomat. she said you know what i'm

about. being on university standards. provost of stanford. asked commencement speaker at smu. national security advisor. she thinks what she has done in her career. if position have a position on a war or whatever they have. she stands behind everything she did as george bush did for everything they did for them to skew and say enhanced interrogation lied up to the lead up of this war as this professor has done. in fact, here is the professor talking to ainsley a couple of weeks ago. let's listen. >> she played a prominent role in the bush administration's effort to mislead the american people about the presence of weapons of mass destruction. and she, at the very least, condoned the bush administration's policy of enhanced interrogation techniques such as waterboarding. and that does it for me. >> rutgers is a place where students should be happy and joyful and proud of their achievements and not be distracted by political controversy. >> this is a couple of months ago anticipation energy was building about what would happen and what decision would be made on
5:19am
this. do you think there was any fear that there would be any violence at the graduation? >> you know, i wouldn't think so because even the protests this week i was watching the footage of it they said the rutgers paper says said it was the biggest sit-in they ever had. less than 50 people. mostly muslim students. a handful of professors. the size of rutgers university is huge. if there was thousands of people on the lawns. i would still think there would be a strong argue document go if she wanted to. after all she was invited and proud of her record. handful of students feeling this way. she is bawl academia and doesn't want to be a distraction. looking at her background, secretary of state, national security advisor, her role with -- in the bush 41's administration and she went to provost at stanford. university of denver. if you look at people qualified to be a commencement speaker that's it. two years ago snooki was their commencement speaker. >> really snooki? >> really?
5:20am
>> yeah. >> was anyone offended at that? here is a very special day we put in four hard years of work at this graduation work and you give us snooki? >> it is. i think you should have been offended if snooki was your commentsment speaker. >> this is late rome if snooki is the commencement speaker. >> great work on this story. you heard it here on "fox & friends." condoleezza rice not going to be the commencement speaker at rutgers. thanks, brian. >> thanks for the reporting. >> the sit-in on may 6th is not going to happen. the teach-in may 18th rutgers has got to get somebody else. >> maybe snooki is available again. >> go enjoy pancakes. enjoy your saturday. >> they fight for our freedom and then they come home only to fight to find a job. cheryl casone introduces us to people stepping up to the plate to get our heroes working. >> and if you like your siblings more successful than you, it may not be your fault. just blame it on your birth order.

good morning. if if you play your cards right, you can get that deal on a great getaway for you, but not all credit cards were created equal. here with the top cards travel expert mark murphy. good morning. >> good morning. >> there are new ones out that people ought to take advantage. >> my number one pick is the chase preferred safire card. it comes with bon us points, so when you sign up -- you have to know that you have to spend money, so all those bon us points, they don't happen until you make a transaction. so be prepared to spend $3,000 in the first 90 days in order to get that 40,000 bonus points, then it will take you up to a $500 credit towards your next vacation. you have to understand you'll be spending money in order to earn
5:55am
those points. >> of course. is that something that only works for particular airlines? >> they give you travel credits, whatever you want to spend on travel, you can literally choose anything and take advantage of it. >> the bar clay card arrival world mastercard. >> they give you the signing bonus of 40,000 when you spent the $3,000. what's interesting is you get double points on every purchase, whereas with the chase safire you get double points on travel and dining, the bar clay gives you double points on every purchase. not quite as good as the chase preferred, but it's still a good option. >> then the blue sky from american express. >> by the way, both of those other cards, the chase and bar clay have annual fees. the blue sky from american express, no annual fee, but the bonus is only 7500 points, and that is on a purchase of $1,000, so you have to be prepared to
5:56am
spend $1,000 out of the gate. >> some people are probably going, mark, you're throwing a lot of numbers at me. why should we care about this? why is it worth is it in. >> it's a great way to add incremental savings to your travel. everybody uses plastic. if you're going to spend money with a card, why not get something back on it. they charge 2%, 3%, 4% merchant fees. they're giving it back to you in terms of loyalty. it works for them. it gets you to focus on using that card religiously, and it's coming out of those mvp fees, so they're funding it out of their own fees and keeping you loyal. as we go, some of these cards actually help if you travel internationally so you don't get nicked. >> the reason i say chase preferred, no foreign transactions fee. those add up when you travel
5:57am
internationally, so that's important. if you have time, we can talk about a hotel card. >> we don't, but give us a link, we'll send our viewers there. >> go and look and take a look at starwood hotel card. >> mark murphy, thank you so much. more "fox & friends" in two minutes.

6:02am
government. a memo came out, it was pulled out in a foia request, and showed a lot of collusion behind the scenes, the white house trying to change the explanation. here's the state department spokeswoman ma remary hart. >> the amount of tax payment that go entice all of this is incredibly time-consuming for our folks and other agencies as well. we are committed to doing it because it's important, but when we've already done it, the point of doing more, when we could be spending time talking about embassy security, bringing people to justice, that's a better allocation of resources. >> have you ever seen anything more arrogant? >> when you put it in the context of the news in the morning, which we are learning that the state department will be tutori ining members of its ,
6:03am
they've farmed it out to a consulting agency, the use of money, time and effort their better resources are being reported to. to train you to testify in front of congress. and john boehner saying he will hold a special committee headed by -- but the state department saying they're surprised that john boehner is doing this, saying they're also subpoenaing john kerry about this. they say we've been cooperating the whole time. you've been cooperating the whole time, then how come a nonprofit had to sue in order to get these documents that tie the white house to the -- >> because they say it had nothing to do with benghazi, the e-mail was about the region, but special didn't have anything to do with benghazi. that's interesting, because they were sued specifically for documents about benghazi. >> which raises a question, why is a nonprofit ability to get what congressionally investigators weren't able to get a year and a half ago?
6:04am
>> that's why secretary of state john kerry is being hauled in front of the committee inch it starts to look lie obstruction. these were the talking points given to susan rice. this is absolutely about benghazi, and they withheld it. >> yet liberals are trying to say this is just a witch-hunt by conservatives. listen to what harry reid is say, responding by blaming the koch brothers -- showing republicans care more about defending billionaires like the koch brothers and trying to rekindle the debuvged right-wing conspiracy theories than raising the minimum wages. >> when we just had this new memo that specifically litches the white house to having altered these talking point.
6:05am
governor mike huckabee reacted arier. >> this is a man who can't utter a sentence without bringing the koch brothers into it. they have nothing to do with this scandal, but it's almost a point where harry reid has become a comedy, a tragic comedy, but a comedy nonetheless. when he says something, just know whatever he's saying has nothing to do with the topic at hand. meanwhile, more on that story here, keep it here, probably the only network covering the benghazi story. meanwhile, condoleezza rice was asked by rutgers to come and speak at their commencement, then protests ensued. a group of students were outraged they had asked condoleezza rice to come speak will. getting an exclusive here on "fox & friends" and condoleezza rice backing out of delivering

this commencement speech saying -- commencement should be a type of joyous celebrations. rutgers' invitation to me has become a distraction for the university community. i'm honored to have served my country. i have defended america's belief in free speech. these values are central to the health of our democracy. that is not what is at issue here. so she is stepping down. >> i think her motives seem honorable, and i'm still sad that she did this. it's totally fair to debate her tenure as secretary of state, but she's basically being shouted down by a small group of angry people. that's not a good precedent. if you don't want to hear someone's position, you just prevent them from talking? that's not something that's healthy. >> pretty offensive calling her a war criminal, not saying her resume was worthy of being the speaker, when we heard from
6:07am
brian, that snooki was the commencement speaker a few years back. it will seem they would be more offended by than that is the first female secretary of state and second african-american secretary of state following colin powell. >> but she wasn't on a reality show. >> that's not on her resume. maybe the situation from "jersey shore" will be invited. here's some of your viewer e-mails. if the professors and protesters are any indication of the people associated with rutgers, i wouldn't go there, either. >> and linda says -- it shows class, which rutgers does not have. >> again, a handful of people affect the majority? i would be ecstatic to hear her speech. that is the point, isn't it? don't we want to debate? let's talk about them, not force the person you disagree with to shut up. that's not for free speech.
6:08am
that's an authoritarian impulse. >> i remember at the university of pittsburgh, different speakers would come. every student could come, have a discussion, there was a q&a session. there was always a difference room of opinions. it wasn't shouted down -- >> but college is about only have approved thoughts. you know that. [ laughter ] >> it's like getting that way. some other stories made headlines, a disturbing story we've been telling you about veterans left to die because of the a secret wait list. officials at the va hospital denied knowing anything about it, but a second whistle-blower is stepping forward. dr. catherine mitchell says officials are destroying evidence, and that she has records proving the hospital used secret waiting lists to hide the long wait times that veterans faced. earlier drch mitchell saided scandal doesn't stop at just one
6:09am
document. >> in the past investigations that have occurred a a routine basis in general things are swept under the carpet before the investigation is completed, because they have advanced notice. >> and dr. mitchell says she does fear retaliation from the va for coming forward. at this hour, a new day of heavy fighting in ukraine, this just 24 hours after the bloodiest day in months. chaos breaking out in the streets. at least 42 people are dead after the intense day of fighting. the building catching fire when ukrainian activists stormed the complex being held by pro-russian forces. it's believed both sides were throwing gas bombs around the building, this as ukraine launches the first major offensive to take back an eastern city, two ukrainian soldiers debt. now president obama threatening even tougher sanctions against

russia. as john kerry gets called to testify on benghazi, the state department is hiring tutors to prep for congressional hearings, after a spring of embarrassing q&as. remember when john mccain slammed -- >> the government has denounced them, the coalition -- the coalition part of the government. >> i stand corrected. >> i have no more questions for this incredibly highly qualified group of nominees. >> one democrat, senator clair mccaskill calling out the state department, asking why they're spending money on tutors rather than time and attention on fixing real problems. ben affleck may be great at running a gambling racket in the movies. >> why the house? >> because the house always wins. which is why we don't have to

6:12am
especially now that i live with a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. i was taking warfarin but wondered, could i focus on something better? my doctor told me about eliquis for three important reasons. one, in a clinical trial eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three, unlike warfarin there's no routine blood testing. [ male announcer ] don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures.
6:13am
those three important reasons are why i'm shooting for something better. eliquis. [ male announcer ] ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you.

nearly 20 months after the terrorist attacks that left four americans murdered, congress is taking its most aggressive act yet. john boehner has announced a special committee. congressman, thanks for coming on. >> thanks for having me, tucker. >> i think some of our viewers could be confused how a nonprofit watch got this memo when congress has been unable to get this key memo for over a year and a half. what happened? >> that's a question we all want to ask. and yet, you know, this watch
6:16am
dog group, judicial watch, was able to get this information. little did we know. >> my understanding is if a government agency, in this case the state department, knowingly refuses to hand over a document to congressional investigator, that's obstruction of justice and a crime, isn't it? >> it absolutely is, especially when you're looking at it adjoining with a political agenda. those are felonying prosecutable in law. >> what answers are you going to be seeking? >> i think it will get you to redefine putting together and focus this group of trying to make sure we get all the information 689 there's many more documents that may have been left out. this shows a predicated line of thinking politically protecting the president and the state department, instead of coming up about the facts with what was actually happening.
6:17am
>> the president's involved in this. two weeks later he's talking about this video at the united nations. so this is a smoking gun that's locked and loaded. >> sol you've been at the center of this from the beginning. why did the white house lie about why these attacks took place? >> well, they had this whole narrative, they didn't want to leave a footprint in libya, anywhere else in the middle east. they were predispositioning a process to fail. when this came about, they couldn't have that narrative before the election cycle, because the president had said al qaeda is on the run, bin laden is dead. the same thing occurs with secretary of state hillary clinton, so they had to dispel this narrative and make sure the american pebbles weren't going be changed in that you are vupts about barack obama. >> but the truth always comes out, the oldest law in washington. thank you for joining us, and i

6:44am
what we call zone 1/2 osis, means it came from animals. in this case mers came from a campbell. we don't know how it made that jump from camels to humans. we think it's probably through the air, better it could be through drinking camel milk or eating the meat. this is common in saudi arabia where the virus originated. what concern should we have? quarantine? can it be spread from human to human? >> mers does spread from human to human, but fortunately it's a bit different to get it from another person. the only human to human transmission has been people in the same house or sharing a hospital room. we haven't seen it from riding on a bus or airplane from someone. that's a concern with this man who's come to the united states
6:45am
carrying the virus. so far we haven't seen additional cases. >> so perhaps don't eat camel plate. >> certainly. >> or i'll. also a big report from the world health organization on antibiotics. we've been hearing this for a couple years ago, that doctors say i don't want to prescribe antibiotics, because we're developing this large resistance to them and they're basically not working in a lot of case. now the w.h.o. saying antibiotics are so widely described the bacterias are developing the resistant. >> they looked at antibiotic resistance in 114 countries, and this is a problem globally. unfortunately antibiotic resistance is on the rise. so we're seeing these antibiotics, these drugs that once worked to treat certain infections not functioning properly anymore, because the bacteria they're designed to kill have adapted to tolerate
6:46am
them. i talked last week about mrsa with the staph infections, we only have a handful to treat that. >> what do we do? doctors don't want to prescribe them for little kids when they're 1 years old. they want to see if they can work it through naturally, but what can we do? >> about 50% of antibiotics that are unprescribed are unnecessary. >> wow. >> the first thing we need to take is stop prescribing antibiotics for colds and those kinds of things. we're under pressure to see more patients in less time, so it's easier for me to write a prescription thain to explain to someone why they don't need these medicines, so we all need to take responsibility for this problem and only prescribe antibiotics when they're needed.
6:47am
for people taking it, you need to take the full dose. don't stop it once you feel better. you need to take your doses on too many, and maybe sure you kill all the bacteria so they can't adapt and linger. then the next time you do need that medicine it wouldn't work, so don't call the doctor and say i need a z pack. all right. get out of meyer hair, i'll write a prescription for you. good to see you. >> thank you. this toddler has a swing to make a pro. he's showing off his skills, but let's hear from brenda. hey, guys. good morning. just as we're seeing jobs tick up, are these anticapitalists out to tear the market down? it looks like millions of americans who like their employer-sponsored health care plan won't be able to keep it. should you worry? what's the government spending money on taz got bill o'reilly worked up? at the top of owling, only the
